. for our first segment we turn to israel and the occupied territories where israeli forces have begun the year with a spate of killings of unarmed palestinian civilians. so far this month five unarmed civilians have been shot dead by israeli troops. the latest in a was a 21-year- old palestinian woman who was killed when israeli forces opened fire at a west bank school. the witness said she was standing with a group of companions when they came under fire. >> two israeli soldiers traveling in a white car pointed their weapons, shooting indiscriminately at a college where the women were standing at the entrance. there was another man inside. they shot repeople and a large number of soldiers arrived. >> on monday, the israeli human- rights group that some put out a report saying israeli forces had been extensively and systematically violating their own rules of engagement when suppressing protests in the west bank. according to jesselyn, since 2005, at least 48 palestinians have been killed by live ammunition fired at people throwing stones. six more were killed by rubber coated bullets
to jerusalem where we will be broadcasting for the next two days. israel's election. driving to the heart of a sensitive but still stagnant process of peacemaking with the palace. today is a day for israelis to make a choice about their next leaders. no political party has ever gained a majority in israeli elections. so there's expected to be a lot of postturing about what type of government there will be for israel over the next four years. my colleague looks at what is on the ballot box today. >> israel's prime minister, benjamin netanyahu was cheery this morning as he arrives to vote. by the end of the day he will likely have something more to be chief about. the leader of the party is expected to come out on top and keep his job. but at jerusalem's main market the lack of suspense means there's little fever. they talk about israel being divided and disillusioned. most take it as a give than benjamin netanyahu will remain in office. >> if you ask me, nothing. no b.b., no nothing. >> security, never far from the minds of israelis is what many see as netanyahu's strength. but at least to
and experience to tackle israel's many problems. rejecting criticism from home and overseas, he is taking israel down a dangerous confrontational path. mr. netanyahu has authorized even more building in the settlements. there has been no progress in the peace talks with palestinians. the prime minister could isolate israel even further. >> if they often form a government with the extreme right wing and the ultra religious, this is a government that will call -- with the european union, a clash with the obama administration and will not curry favor with the israeli public. this kind of government might not survive. >> this party led by a formal journalist could now play a role in a more modern government. another newcomer is shaking israel's political landscape. >> benjamin netanyahu has taken this page -- taken the stage. let's listen. >> that was the whole of israeli citizens. i'm hoping to leave these changes and for this purpose, we ought to create a wide as possible government. i started this task already this evening. the government that will be created will be based on the following princi
that mean for the u.s. relationship with israel? >>> and today marks the 40th anniversary of the supreme court's landmark ruling on abortion in the case of roe versus wade. this morning, new poll numbers show what a majority of the country thinks about this always controversial topic. good morning from washington. it's tuesday, january 22nd, 2013, and this is "the daily rundown." i'm chris cillizza in for the "he lost his voice" chuck todd. let's get right to the first reads of the morning. five years ago, candidate barack obama laid out his vision of the presidency, talking about leadership in an interview with the "reno gazette-journal's" editorial board. >> i think ronald reagan changed the trajectory of america, in a way that, you know, richard nixon did not. and in a way that bill clinton did not. he put us on a fundamentally different path, because the country was ready for it. >> that wasn't the way president obama talked during his first term, but that was the guy who launched his second term yesterday. in an 18-minute address, the president laid out a defense of liberalism, a fo
agencies here in israel and we have talked to a few of them is that this particular research facility has been a facility that they know has been part of a chain of facilities that syria runs that have been trying to create unconventional weaponry. we are talking chemical weapons. however we are told this particular facility didn't have chemical weapons in it. however it was in a link. something that would help them move, for example, weaponry around. this facility we are hearing from intelligent sources was one in which very large missiles were made to be smaller so they could be transported. that is the key here. a lot of worry in israel that the weapons in syria are being transported across the border to lebanon into the hands of hezbollah which is a known enemy of israel. >> real quick here, sara. do we know if the syrians are threatening now to retaliate? >> they have given some inkling that it was unacceptable, b barbaric as they put it. we are not hearing the heightened language you often here targeted at israel. we heard it from iran. iran basically saying through their media that
's a good supporter of israel. he has been there and the record will show that but he is not reluctant to disagree when he thinks disagreement is appropriate. >> you brought up israel. he referred to a jewish lobby saying it intimidates a lot of people on capitol hill what kind of thinking does that reflect? can you understand pro-israel senators being concerned by that comment? >> they shouldn't be that concerned that term slips out from time to time. there was an article this week that the israeli newspaper, har rhettz, occasionally used the same thing. so, chuck should have said israeli lobby, not jewish lobby and perhaps he needs to write on a blackboard 100 times it is the israeli lobby. but is there an israeli lobby. there are people who very supportive of the state of israel. i am very poretive of the state of israel. so is senator hagel and you will see this in the confirmation hearings but it doesn't mean you have to agree with every single position that the israeli government takes. >> fair enough, but on a couple of measures, it seems very important, he seemed so feel so str

the united states and israel and the senate or the congress than what you said. name one dumb thing we have been goaded in to do because of the pressure of the israeli or jewish lobby. >> i have already stated that i regret the term nlg. >> you said back then it makes us do dumb things. you can't name one senator intimidated. now give me one example of the dumb things we're pressured to do up here. >> we were talking in that interview about the middle east. about positions. about israel. >> now that exchange followed another faceoff earlier today with senator john mccain over the war in iraq. >> will you please answer the question? will you correct or incorrect when you said that the surge would be the most dangerous foreign policy blunder in this country since until nam? were you correct or incorrect? yes or no? >> my reference -- >> are you -- the question is, were you right or wrong? that's a pretty straightforward question. >> well -- >> i would like to answer whether you're right or wrong and then you're free to elaborate. >> well, i'm not going to give you a yes or no answer on a lot

"nightly news" begins now. >>> from nbc news world headquarters in new york, this is "nbc nightly news" with brian williams. >> good evening. it takes just a moment to remember back clearly to the very moment we learned about the shootings at sandy hook elementary school in newtown, connecticut. to remember how shocked we all were and how sad and sorry a scene that was. well, this is still very much the post newtown era. so there was great emotion today at a hearing on guns on capitol hill. especially when a very well-known survivor of gun violence, gabby giffords, came forward to deliver her own remarks. and yet during the hearing, we learned of another shooting. this one in arizona. a workplace, one gunman, three shooting victims, one
that drawn enron could cross as early as this year. israel's red line is based simply on the amount of uranium iran has enriched. iran's intentions remain a mystery but one thing is certain-- they keep getting better at enriching uranium. scott. >> pelley: david, thank you very much. iran will be one of the biggest challenges for chuck hagel if he is confirmed as the new secretary of defense. hagel had a rough day today at his senate confirmation hearing. the former republican senator's past statements about iran, israel, and iraq drew hostile questions, and here's wyatt andrews. >> reporter: republicans charge that in his 12 years as a senator, chuck hagel was too soft on iran and not supportive of israel. hagel was forced to retract one 2006 comment when he said the jewish lobby intimidates a lot of people up here, meaning congress, a statement that drew questions from senator lindsey graham. >> give me an example of where we've been intimidated by the israeli jewish lobby to do something dumb. regarding the middle east, israel, or anywhere else. >> well, i can't give you an examp
, but the proxy americans look at when it comes to the middle east is israel, when it comes the dealing with iran, with israel, with the broader region. hillary clinton holds the record for the most countries visited at 112. israel, the least visits from any secretary of state since rogers. henry kissinger, 36 times for israel. is this significant? >> well, i mean, she was very energetic. i don't know if she gets frequent flyer miles for all of the miles she logged. that is her job as chief diplomat. >> sadly probably the one perk she does not get. >> right, but the fact is our relationship with israel hasn't been the best. so i don't know if you can directly equate that. anne marie served in the administration. but under the obama administration, relations with israel have been very tough. they may have reached a bottom and mare they're on an uprise, but once again, i think this comes down to president obama's policy. remember, she's the secretary of state. she implements the president's agenda, and i think a lot of the problems out there, i think, were president obama's vision. i think i may be
in this week's election. what does it mean for the u.s./israel relationship? officemax can help you drive supply costs down... and down. use your maxperks card and get a 10-ream case of officemax multiuse paper for just 4.99 after maxperks rewards. find thousands of big deals now... at officemax. >>> we will show the courage to try and resolve our differences with other nations peacefully. not because we are naive about the dangers we face but because engagement can more durably lift suspicion and fear. >> that's president obama giving his inaugural address, giving a glimpse to iran and its nuclear ambitions. this came in the same week hard line benjamin netanyahu suffered a setback in elections but a new interview with israel prime minister. dennis ross, senior director of the national security council and special adviser to secretary clinton on iran. dennis w a big welcome to you, sir, what was your takeaway from the president's line we played from the inaugural address, what does it signal to you? >> i think there's been a continuity in the president's attitude, certainly in his approa
-semite. it's not just being anti-israel. he's got a problem with what he calls the jews, the jewish lobby. >> i don't think he ever used the jews as a term and i think he said the jewish lobby casually. he probably should have been more precise because he was referring in this instance to those who support israel. he wasn't referring to a jewish lobby concerned about general anti-semiti anti-semitism. when you're talking about israel you have to be precise in this country which is very heterogeneous. we have a lot of different points of view and a lot of sensitivities that have to be respected. inl that. that's how we talk, joan, in america. we make careful effort to do that. >> right. and peter is right. the neocons didn't do their homework. aaron david miller, the great middle east expert who actually is the person that chuck headachel used the phrase the jewish lobby with, came out in foreign policy and defended him and called these charges scurrilous and defended his approach to israel and to war. they popped off, they didn't do their homework, they assumed, you know, elliott abrams i
him recommit, as he did when we met privately, his support for maintaining the defense of israel and point out that his voting record has consistently been to support israel. i was pleased to hear him talk about iran and his support for international sanctions and the president's position on iran. so i think he is -- and this hearing is still going on. i think he's been trying to be very forthrite and responsive to all the questions that have been asked by the committee members. >> it seems like a rear guard action on the vietnam war. a few minutes later in the very hearings i was showing you there, chuck hagel returned to the topic of the surge in iraq and gave a more thoughtful response. it related to his decision making in his time as mccain had time there, too, in vietnam. let's watch. >> i saw it from the bottom. i saw what happens. i saw the consequences and the suffering and the horror of war. so i did question a surge. it wasn't an aberration to me ever. i always ask the question is this going to be worth the sacrifice because there will be sacrifice. in the surge case in

calling for the destruction of israel. the recent assassination of the head of hamas was reported as an assassination. we have a war going on in afghanistan. they accuse president obama of assassination for electoral reason autos when you say they. >> sean: meaning al jazeera. >> one of their radical common tateors we're talking about al jazeera arabic. al jazeera english is a different entity from arabic. i remember when i first got hired by al jazeera. bill o'reilly, your colleague had me on, going on and on about things al jazeera arabic had done. i said you're talking about a different channel here. he didn't want to hear it until i reminded him star news owned by rupert murdock had gone on its knees to the communist regime in china bill's response was star news is a different channel. my point exactly. it is funded by the royal family of qatar. they do fund developmental projects in hamas-run gaz yachl they do support the muslim brotherhood government. but this does not. >> sean: a terror organization they called the israelies, accused them of assassination of a terrorist ark
will be the ones who determine who loyally represents the state of israel's vital interest. in the past four years we have faced tremendous pressures. i shall continue to protect israel's vital interests for the sake of the security of israel's citizens. >> despite talk of a rift between president obama and prime minister netanyahu, obama has yet to take any action on one of the most controversial settlement expansions by the israeli government in years. israel is now expanding the e1 settlement after objections were raised under george w. bush. the zone is particularly sensitive because it would completely bisect the west bank, dashing with a remote hopes remain for two-state solution. the obama administration has refused to cut aid or even offer criticism, limiting its reaction to calling the expansion "counterproductive." new details have been revealed on the obama administration's weapon sales to bahrain after -- during the ruling monarchy's ongoing crackdown on opposition protesters. the website propublica reports the u.s. has sold weaponry including ammunition, combat vehicle parts, communic
that has managed to keep its peace with israel for a substantial period of time. and by and large we haven't seen much activity except in the fights between hamas and israel, and ands he bu la and israel. so we are definitely very much invested in the situation in egypt, and in a peaceful egypt that we can continue to cooperate with. >> jennifer: right. we certainly do want to see a peaceful egypt. you could give in coming secretary of state john kerry advice, what would you say to him? >> i think the course that has been chartered bisek tear clinton and president obama participate, in terms of dealing with president morsi have been a very, very wise course and i think we have seen that particularly in light of the events that occurred around the attack on the american embassy in cairo during the same time there was an attack in benghazi. and by and large this strategy of accepting morsi as president is the only way america can go in this reward. we can't afford to lose another country to the islamists, and we did with iran in 1979. however, the only thing i am
? yes. should israel be forced to negotiate with them if they don't recognize israel's right to exist, if they don't renounce violence? no, absolutely. third, sanctions. do you support increased sanctions? would you support unilateral sanctions in? yes. there were differences between those statements then and now. he said they were five, six, seven years ago. the world has changed. even george bush didn't have a regime against iran at that point in time. i told him i was going to make these remarks public. and he said, go right ahead because i'm going to say the same thing at the hearings. at those hearings, he'll allay the concerns of the people. none of the major groups that's come out against hagel, most of it comes politically from the hard right. >> we will leave it there. you spend your morning with cruz, and then you get to hang out with beyonce as chair of the inaugural committee. working hard. >> david, let me point out, every one of those issues that chuck just mentioned for hagel, he disagreed in his record with chuck schumer on israel, on iran, on hezbollah. hagel's record
about the israelis is blood curdling, it isn't just anti-israel, and it goes on like that. so, this is what they believe. but i don't think the diplomacy is very simple at this point because clearly there is a very large constituency for the brotherhood in egypt. whether it's a permanent majority or not we don't know, we'll find out. i suspect that when they govern, they're going to lose a lot more support than they had when they were in opposition because they will be a failure, but i do think that we have a dilemma. the fact is that mubarak is gone. the brotherhood is in control, but there is the army which is generally more pro western, more pro american, very loathe to reengaging a war with israel and they remember the previous wars all of which they lost at very heavy price and would be a stabilizing element. and that's the reason, sean, why we can't cut off aid because then the aid will flow in from iran or from saudi arabia and they could end up being far more radical. what we can do is try to use the aid we have to exert pressure on the pro american elements mostly in

to lure back the well-founded, aggressive campaign that has saw to depict him as an anti-israel, homophobic politicians eager to get the pentagon's budget. pushback during meetings appears to have been effective, said an official helping him to prepare for the hearing. the effort to vilify hagel and his record as remain at a bus but has not reached the type of crescendo that has doomed high- profile political nominations in the past. 'we have had a very impressive strategy for tackling some of the issues that have been raised,' the hagel aide said on wednesday, speaking on the condition of anonymity to discuss the nomination's outlook. that is not to say that the confirmation is a foregone conclusion, supporters concede. critics have piled on to the initial critiques with charges that hagel's ties to defense contractors and other private sector firms may create conflict of interest. senator carl levin, the chair of the senate armed services committee, says that hagel will face tough questions about his past demands. democrats outnumber republicans on the panel 14-12, but committ
